List of Pests by Plant Cultures

List by Scientific Names

A list item contains: Genus and species name [CODE] of trap type suitable for catching this pest insect


Go to list by latin name!


After the species names abbreviations give recommended trap designs which were optimized for capture of the given species. RAG = sticky delta trap (with changeable sticky sheets); PAL; PALs, PALz, PALf = sticky cloak trap; VARL; VARb3; VARs+ = funnel traps (non-sticky; high catching capacity; in selected pests suitable for control through mass trapping); KLP+ = "hat" trap; Yf = click beetle trap (plastic trap body product of RO-SA Micromecanica, Italy); TAL = pitfall trap (for crawling insects); SZs, SZINb = coloured sticky sheets (no pheromone). A "+" sign after trap codes (i.e. VARs+; KLP+, etc.) indicates that for the given species captures are higher when insects caught are killed in the catch container.

Please ask for a price quote for your actual order! Pheromone baits are prepared fresh, on order. Minimal order is 2 traps per species, unless otherwise indicated (package containing 2 traps, 2 baits and all accessories necessary for operation for about 4-6 weeks in the field, plus detailed advisory material on assemblage & use of traps and specific information concerning the target species in English or Hungarian). Baits only (without traps) can also be ordered. We do not recommend replacing baits in sticky delta (RAG) or sticky cloak (PAL, PALs, PALz) traps (which had already been operated in the field) for fear of cross-contamination with pheromone traces. In case of non-sticky trap desings be sure to use only baits of the SAME species when replacing baits!
